Found A Bird
1 Attachment(s)
Found a pet bird wandering around our backyard today. I have no idea what to do with or about birds, ideas appreciated. Dog carrier + handful of sticks + saucer of water.

Posted on Craigslist and getting ready to call Humane Society. He's got a band but doesn't look like a phone number on it.

Preheat your oven to 350...

Retrieve the BBQ sauce from the fridge...

He could fly, at least around the room. We tried giving him a place to perch, some food (parrot pellets) and water. Seemed OK last night, just tired. He was in tougher shape this morning so we had to take him to the vet and they are caring for him and will notify animal control. Hopefully he pulls through. Fingers crossed. He may have been traveling with a buddy, got an email from a person close in the 'hood that saw two of them in their backyard yesterday morning. He is very, very thin, just skin and bones.

We hope he makes it too and gets home. He looks alert and bright. Also probably exhausted, dehydrated and stressed.

Although he's not a raptor, I'd call Birds of Prey Foundation in Broomfield 303-460-0674. They give excellent care and will give you good advice about what to do with your little guy. They also do get occasional exotics like your find. I'd trust their advice.

Good Luck! Suzie (and Steve)

Or maybe he needs a new home if he's in such poor shape :(

I'm assuming the escape was unintended and he just had a big adventure, worse for wear. The nurse at the vet wants him if he's not claimed, so I'm sure he's got a good home waiting for him.

Seems like if he was from a nearby neighbor, there would be some signs on telephone poles or roadsigns around the 'hood.

Just talked to the vet, poor little dude didn't make it. Vet's assessment was he starved to death and had been in the wild for some time. Humane Society will have a record of him so if anyone does try to find him they'll at least be able to tell them what happened. Pretty bummed about it.
